Self Catering Cottages

Kingfisher Barn Ltd

Rye Farm, Abingdon OX14 3NN, UK – 01235 537538

Delightful staff, accommodation doesn't merit 4* rating. Insufficient storage - drawers stuffed with bedspreads, limited hanging space, heavy duvet on the bed despite heatwave. Contrary to welcome folder, B&B rooms were not serviced daily, wet towel and bathmat left on the floor to be exchanged were picked up, towel hung up, bathmat folded up on shelf, so wet when we went to use again. By chance, husband caught up with cleaner who advised that she had been told that our room & other family members' next door didn't need doing. He told her we needed clean towels, so that's what we got - no bathmat! Next door didn't get any service at all. Hospitality tray wasn't refreshed, had we used the crockery provided, there was no way we could have washed it so it would have been dirty for the next day. Cobwebs in the lampshades directly over the bed. The location is good for walking into Abingdon and there's plenty of parking.

Generally good, but two massive ‘downs’. First, when I arrived, the toilet had excrement in it. Disgusting. The staff told me there is a fault in the sewer system, something to do with back pressure causing next door’s doo-doos to come up in a neighbouring room. Not good enough. They were getting it sorted, but the room should have been checked before my arrival. And I got there saturated, soaked through to the skin, kit soaked. This was the only place I stayed in 9 nights away where there was literally nothing at all there to dry stuff out. No fan, no fan heater (except for one that set off all the fire alarms!!), nowhere warm to put my stuff to dry a bit overnight. So the next day I had to put on wet gear. I had the irritating response, “no one else has ever mentioned it”. And a suggestion (with my big backpack filled and reaching up to the back of my neck) that perhaps I should take more spares so I’d always be carrying dry kit. Nice people, but these two ‘downs’ were bad.

Brook Farm Cottages

Milton Rd, Drayton, Abingdon OX14 4EZ, UK – 01235 820717

I stayed in the old dairy cottage and they have 3 cottages. It just was perfect for Monday to Friday as we were only staying for a short time in the October half term but the stairs were very narrow and it was quite hard to get my suitcase up the stairs and the ceiling was very low and the beams thatwere holding up the ceiling I kept banging my head on them.

Cottages.com used to be called Cottages4You. It was one the first and one of the biggest of the Holiday Cottage Rental websites. They have over 14,000 properties - and so should have one near where you where you would like to go - not only anywhere in the UK but they have lots of overseas properties as well.

The website is really fast and simple to use. I fact it is close to a no-nonsense approach! It does what it says on the tin.  Good hunting.

Well worth a look. The properties are well presented - each with a property manager. I did see that they don't have their telephone number under their photo!

Definately a slick and believable website. Enjoy!

ToadHall.jpg
Toad Hall Cottages are also very well established and specialise in the South West. They do Pet Friendly Cottages which can be a bonus for lots of families. They also to 'big' and 'luxury' if that is your bag. Go with a crowd - some of the best holidays are with friends!


Stunning Ancient Devon Longhouse with B & B

Milton Abbot A wonderful 17th Century farmhouse set in the heart of the Devon countryside near the historic and beautiful town of Tavistock on the edge of the Dartmoor National Park. Great walks in private wood...
If you have to have sun - or atleast more sun - you might like to have a look at the villas below. Some will be lovely in the spring in autumn when we are rather winding down in the UK - to say the least!

James Villas as the name suggested just do 'Abroad'. They were one of the first big ones. If you are interested in Europe, North Africa or Florida give them a click. Huge choice and flashy site. Enjoy!
